Scripting a presentations for the unMonastery at Next

We design together a TED-style presentation of the unMonastery to be televised (learn more). This is a wiki: don't be afraid to edit it. 

  • Duration: 12-15 minutes
  • Language: strictly Italian
  • Wide screen: yes.

The challenge is to imagine a format that can convey the unMonastery's magic and urgency. Representativeness is a low priority: no need to show everything, focus on the media-friendly, "pop" stuff. We would like:

  1. to show people, the unMonastery in all its glorious diversity
  2. to show action: artefacts and interaction
  3. to show Matera and its beauty, an important part of unMonastery Matera's visual identity.
  4. to latch onto the Edgeryders narrative – 10 people in Matera, 2000 more all over the Internets
  5. to make use of Nico's spectacular footage
  6. to tell a tightly woven story that makes sense to someone who has never heard of the unMonastery, nor of Edgeryders.

Suggested by Riccardo: @Alberto as narrator-MC sewing together the different pieces.

Fallback position: a presentation by Alberto with slides. 

Concept

Start from this post. The narrative is: we borrow and redeploy key ideas from monasticism towards social innovation, societal resilience, individual freedom and equality. We illustrate the concept (which has shown to have some traction) and move on to show it in vivo as embodied in unMonastery Matera. End with another saint, Augustine (sermon 80): 

Mala tempora, laboriosa tempora, hoc dicunt homines. Bene uiuamus, et bona sunt tempora. Nos sumus tempora: quales sumus, talia sunt tempora.

The times are bad, the times are troubled, this men say. Let us live well, and times will be good. We are the times: the way we are is the way the times turn out.

Format

I (Alberto) propose the format of a collective presentation, as suggested by Riccardo. This requires the physical presence of about 4 unMonasterians on stage, + Alberto. The format is lively, but very difficult as there needs to be tight adherence to a script. Italian language also a difficulty, though short sentences can be memorized phonetically. 

Update: Alberto's slides are now done, the text is written and timed. They are shared in the unMonastery => Communication shared Google Drive.

  1. Alberto: 7 minutes (11 slides) scripted presentation with slides about the concept
  2. one minute video by @NicoBis (see in the comments below). unMonasterians use the last 10 seconds of the video to come on stage.
  3. 5 unMonasterians: about 1 minute each, with little stories, projects, artifacts. Example:
    • "I am @La_Gaia, and I come from London.  I have been involved in the development of unMonastery since its conception at the Living on the Edge conference in 2012, fundamentally I am responsible for shaping the measurements and evaluation of the project. I bring my experience of network analysis, ensuring that we don’t measure out what matters, unlike the empty numbers most projects gauge their success upon. This approach to evaluation is focused on enhancing the embedded and emergent process the unMonastery is focused on catalysing in Matera - using as a key marker the relationships that grow from the social impact of the model. My role extends to advising the ongoing development, ensuring meaningful conflict resolution and contributing new recipes to the evolving cookbook of the unMonastery."
    • "I am @Marc, and I come from Burgundy in France. Together with schools in Matera, we are building a prototype for a totally open source solar tracker in both its software and hardware – a device that allows solar panels to follow the course of the sun, like a sunflower, increasing their output by 40%. The cost of energy consumption for an average family is € 1,150 a year, this device aims to remove that cost completely over a 6 year at most period.  Solar trackers already exist, but they are closed, proprietary and quite expensive. We wish to build one that anyone can make or improve with an Arduino board, scavenged electric motors and cheap sensors, for a tenth of its current price. The project aims to be a first step towards towards real sustainable energy consumption."
    • "I am @Bembo Davies, and I come from Norway. I am the keeper of the Book of Errors. unMonasterians inherit from hacker culture a great attention for documentation; we wish to document our mistakes, of which we make many, so that our brethren unMonasterians in the next 200 years can better avoid them, and troubleshoot them when they can't be avoided."
    • “I am @RitaO, I come from Matera, I’m the interface with the local community and I am an unMonasterian too. I got involved into unMonastery one year ago, when there was the first open meeting here  to introduce the main frame of the project and start a cooperation process with citizens about their vision of the town. I work on facilitating relationships with people and associations from Matera in order to develop the projects of the unMonasterians: on the other side, I would like to create a stable hub at unMonastery’s place with the main goal to create a local network of active groups embedded into a huge European network of creatives and innovators. As an unMonasterian, I’ve got a project based on designing goods for the unMon Community through a participatory process which aims to put together unMonasterians and local artisans, in order to create a stronger visual identity for the unMonastery itself, based on its own clear philosophy, and enable objects to speak for it”.
    • "I am @Kei Kreutler, and I come from New York. At unMonastery, I've established a node of Open Tech School in collaboration with Materani. The School currently holds free workshops on coding, physical computing, interactive games, web and mobile app design, and video production, with workshops evolving according to participants' interests. While offering a wide variety of skills, the project aims to teach individuals how to teach others - working toward the School's longevity beyond the unMonastery residency period. Open Tech School Matera leverages a global network within a local community - connecting to an initiative to make learning technical skills easy, fun and inherently social."
    • others?
  4. Alberto: 40 concluding seconds  of inspiration (1 slide)
  5. we exit, if possible, by stepping symbolically down into the audience.

What to mention?

All unMonastery projects are super-interesting. I think people would especially appreciate:

  • the Book of Errors
  • the Open Source Solar tracker
  • the open data program, with the Open Energy Monitor in particular
  • the mesh network
  • Open Tech School
  • the short food distribution chain project
  • the interface with the local community

Please put a list of unMonasterians willing and able to do this here:

  1. Ben
  2.  ...

Ok what's the story? The promise manifested in the unMonastery?

Nadia's picture

Last year at Ouishare I asked if Sharing is so great then why are so many sharers struggling? I presented the unMonastery as part of a necessary infrastructure to support more innovation, collaboration and sharing without the exploitation that so often underpins it. I think in order for this presentation to be smashing we need to identify what question is currently in the air, and how the unMonastery offers a response.

Any ideas?

Ciao a tutti! Io posso aiutarvi certamente nella costruzione dello spazio. Potrei caricare domani qualcosa delle immagini che abbiamo, ora sento Valerio e vedo come è messo per montare una piccola clip, ha lui le immagini e io tornerò a Roma martedì sera. Considerate che quello che sto facendo a Matera è un lavoro di squadra, che fino ad ora ha significato solo spese per noi, per cui se potessimo prevedere anche un minimo rimborso potremmo fare una cosa veramente figa, usando anche le immagini del drone. 
 
Dobbiamo chiarire che taglio dare al pezzo, se scrivete quello che pensate di fare e acquisiamo il via libera degli unMonks per tutte le immagini, io lavoro sulle indicazioni che mi date e sono convinto che venga fuori un pezzo con un forte impatto visivo e molto affascinante. Fermo restando che la mia intenzione di seguire tutto il percorso di unMon resta inalterata e che, anche se il racconto inevitabilmente sarà orientato in base allo sviluppo degli eventi, credo che ne verrà fuori un documentario di un fascino unico: il mix di Matera, UnMonastery ed Edgeryders è la cosa più interessante che ho incontrato nel corso del mio breve cammino. 
 
Un abbraccio

You can maybe bring Materans (who speak Italian and much more beautiful anyhow) on stage instead of unMonks, to share their accounts (positive, we hope) of the impact of the work the unMon does in their cty, and play a video of the unMonks (even the cute one, as it is balanced with the community feedback). 

If you bring unMonasterians on stage, the video may be of Materans, telling how they see the project. In any case, kind of a mirroring.

Scripting

Alberto's picture

Thanks for the idea [katalin] but this needs to be scripted. [Bembo Davies] can tell you about how hard theater drives you: timing needs to be perfect to the second. All it takes is for someone to go "Er... ehm... " a couple of times for the whole impact to be lost. Scripted means: people write down what they are going to say on the wiki beforehand; they time themselves saying it to make sure we don't go over the limit; then they memorize the words. I work with a virtual stopwatch permanently on my screen. :-)

If we ask Materans to participate, they need to write a script, and like any unMonasterian, would need help to prepare for this. I see no difference.  Sometimes it makes sense to *show* rather than explain. unMon is about the community that hosts it (and unMon Matera is also about developing the prototype for this kind of community, but you all agreed that need not be presented). Anyhow. Just and idea.

Actually, it's a great idea

Alberto's picture

[katalin], I thought this through: I now think you are right of course, and I was wrong. 

But

There is a coordination problem. I can script myself no problem (though it's hard work). I can lean on Ben to script unMonasterians, as the rules of my "benevolent dictatorship" on this matter have been laid out and I trust you guys. But I can't script citizens that come out of the woodwork. So I can't guarantee to Riccardo smooth execution – too many variables.

Unless

Unless, of course, you take the lead for finding, say, two people from Matera and scripting them to a 40 seconds stint each. Are you prepared to take this responsibility?

Carissimi, evidentemente questa clip non racconta nulla di UnMon, è solo un esempio (simpatico) per farvi vedere la qualità delle riprese e del tipo di montaggio che potremmo fare per presentare il progetto. Abbiamo molte immagini dei gruppi di lavoro, della gente che era alla cerimonia di apertura, un sacco di materiale che potremmo utilizzare in base a quello che vogliamo esprimere. Fermo restando che la scaletta ipotizzata da Alberto mi sembra eccellente, le immagini valgono comunque più di molte parole. 

Ho caricato questa piccola clip perchè Mariabyck mi aveva espressamente chiesto qualcosa del risveglio ed Alberto mi chiedeva un minutino per valutare la qualità delle riprese. Non pensavo di utilizzare questo nei 10 minuti per Next, e quando mi permettevo di chiedere un rimborso pensavo ad un ipotetico budget messo a disposizione da repubblica... 

Alberto, so che sarai in italia domani sera, se vuoi chiamami anche sul tardi così valutiamo meglio come procedere, io sono a disposizione per aiutare UnMonastery e per qualsiasi evenienza potete contare su di me. Ciao!

Seems that all the important stuff has been said.

Bembo Davies's picture

I'd agree that the little clip is an oddity and easily dangerous in isolation.  
The nature of documentary is that it isn't scripted, but that it captures events in their context.  The structural problem that the unMo faces is that people's reflections on the positive value of the project probably won't start to amass until well after we have gone...  Tricky, but it's the inevitable cycle of field work.

Alberto, I am not in Matera, but give me 3 days -  I need to discuss this with the rest of the unMonasterians. I have some ideas of who maybe really good, but I need to ask if these people are interested, plus, maybe others have turned up in the meanwhile who would be great. I am happy to contribute to the script but have no experience in this and need backup. I also cannot write it in Italian, so I need translation. I will try to drum up a team, and then I can take the responsibility. I will get back to you soon! Katalin

This discussion has sparked larger issues but...

Kei's picture

I'd very much like to say a few words about the Open Tech School at this event, communicating both its weekly meetings and its larger frame as developing an infrastructure for social learning – something that I think, like the unMonastery, wants to be replicated. I see NEXT as a platform to enhance a particular kind of visibility and credibility for the OTS that may not *directly* help on the ground but will strengthen its broader network.

As I work over the next week to recruit workshop partners and collaborators, the possibility of presenting with someone else from the community on a particular workshop or initiative – while still remaining within its allotted time – seems most favorable to me. As the presentations take shape, I think we should put attention on one, clear narrative for the unMonastery if possible, for the sake of effective communication alone. Perhaps a rubric of ideas for each presentation to draw from and circle around? Whatever the group thinks is best.

Welcome

Sure @Kei. @katalin already convinced me that involving the community is a good idea.

Please everyone that wants to put themselves forward to do this,

  1. add yourselves to the wiki, indicating who is going to be on stage, and whether you are going to need a slide to go with your self-presentation (recommended) 
  2. prepare a scripted 50 seconds in Italian.

We'll have from 4 to 6 of these. I am starting to write my own part tomorrow.

New deadline: Sunday night

Dear friends, the wiki has been dormant – no action at all since March 26th. I will be preparing my presentation on Saturday and Sunday. By Sunday night at the latest, who wants to be on stage please let me know:

  • what they want to say, in under 1 minute in Italian
  • if they need a (one!) slide as a backdrop to what they say.

We have, as you know, five slots, even six is OK. I am traveling next week, so I can't really take care of this after Monday: this means that, if you are not ready by Sunday night, we'll have to move on with people who are.

My presence

Alberto;

I just got back early this morning, and was first given the brief this morning, but the day has as usual gone to other pressing items.  I agree with Ben that mentioning Il Libro dell'Errori is a good way to stretch people's vision as to the breadth of approaches we are bringing to nuture the work.

Me being me, will be poetic, brief and use my time to hit a few graphic images:  Maybe I'll get time after closing circle to  do the write up.  My key words will be:

  • the liberation and privledge of inventing tradition --  
  • the imaginative power released by cross-fertilisation from the global monastic traditions.  
  • the strength of unMonastry not just politically correct - also poetically correct
  • That the Book of Mistakes is an insurance policy against future stupidity that forces us into more solid operational choices.
  •  I can introduce myself as Institute for non-tioxic propaganda.

This is all brilliant. Please prepare your one slide each (except @Marc, who should probably bring his physical prototype along) and send it to me or upload somewhere ASAP. Next has TV production, they are likely to demand my deck of slides a few days before. My part is in the Google Drive, Communication folder. 

If you all start in the same way "I am [NAME], and..." you will give rythm and structure to the whole, as if the unMonastery were speaking through your voices. This trick is called anaphora, and is a very powerful rhetorical tool.  

@La_Gaia, remember to say your name in any case. 

I have four unMonasterians so far, but six slots – even seven. Can I propose at least @Rita O, as Materan unMonasterian?

UnMonastery non e’ solo “politically correct”, ma anche “poetically correct”. L’inspirazione è contagiosa:
E´ un privilegio poter “inventare” la tradizione,
ed e´ liberatorio appropriarsi del potere immaginifico della storia monastica.
Io sono la voce narrante della casa e ho il compito di compilare il Libro degli Errori, affiche´ possa servire da assicurazione contro future idiozie.

My 2 cents - and there's no mention of Matera 2019

Ilaria's picture

La prima volta che ho sentito parlare di unMonastery era a Bruxelles, durante il secondo raduno annuale degli Edgeryders. Ci ho capito poco - all'epoca non conoscevo bene lo spirito hacker, il mondo opensource e l'approccio collaborativo - ma quello che ho capito mi è piaciuto perché mi ricordava molto quello che facciamo noi qui, spesso senza rendercene conto: risolvere i problemi quotidiani basandoci sulla nostra rete di relazioni, senza aspettare che ci diano il permesso. Per questo, quando si è scelto di lanciare il primo prototipo a Matera, ho pensato che fosse una buona notizia: lo sguardo esterno è utile perché ci permette di vedere cose che noi non vediamo più, o che vediamo con occhi disillusi. Io credo che il valore aggiunto dell'unMonastery a Matera sia quello di incoraggiare chi opera sul territorio da tempo ad andare avanti, rafforzando cio che già c'è con ulteriori contatti, con progetti simili. Credo che alla fine, l'innovazione fatta al Sud sia molto più vicina al metodo hacker di quanto non pensiamo: forse non abbiamo l'abitudine di chiamare le cose per nome, e per di più con nomi che suonano strano, ma chi giorno dopo giorno lotta per realizzare il proprio progetto sa che l'innovazione e la creatività non sono cose che si imparano: è un approccio alla vita, è una forma mentis. 

p.s. I think it's a bit lousy not to speak about Matera 2019 as they are the ones that believed in the project, that got the money and that found the place and the people who are making this happen. this said, I am sure Alberto will find a way to pop the bid in his speach perfectly. 

I am arriving in Bari on Friday morning at 9:45 and will drive directly to the Teatro Duni. Sleep well and take good care of yourself. Much love, Ilaria

Second proposal

Ilaria's picture

 

  • La prima volta che ho sentito parlare dell'unMonastery era a Bruxelles, durante il secondo raduno annuale degli Edgeryders. 
  • Ci avevo capito poco - all'epoca non conoscevo bene lo spirito hacker, il mondo dell'opensource e le piattaforme online.
  • Oggi, affianco Joseph Grima - direttore artistico di Matera 2019 - e lavoro con il Comitato per costruire una proposta culturale che non sia fatta di progetti, ma di processi collaborativi; che non presenti un cartellone di eventi ma costruisca una pratica alternativa per produrre cultura, basata sul fare quotidiano.
  • unMonastery rientra in questa sfida:
    • è un processo imperfetto che corregge il tiro ogni giorno, pur tenendo d'occhio gli obiettivi finali,
    • ci permette di sperimentare sul campo cosa significa realmente "fare un programma di residenze per innovatori radicali"
    • ascoltare le reazioni della comunità locale, tra reticenze ed entusiasmi
    • veder crescere le interazioni, tra slanci e timidezze

L'obiettivo finale rimane quello di rafforzare chi già opera da tempo sul territorio: lavoriamo per connettere le iniziative frammentate a reti europee che affrontano temi simili come la rigenerazione di spazi in disuso, lo spreco di competenze, l'insegnamento tra pari.

Con una sola differenza: che l'innovazione si fa attraverso la pratica quotidiana, e non attraverso la predica.

RitaO's picture

Sono Rita e sono di Matera. Ho conosciuto unMonastery un anno fa, al primo co-working pubblico per individuare i problemi e lanciare le sfide da vincere insieme.
Oggi sono l'interfaccia con la comunità locale e lavoro in due direzioni:
- creo relazioni tra gli unMonasterians e associazioni o persone di Matera che hanno gli stessi interessi. Questo ci permette da una parte di implementare i progetti dell'unMonastery, dall'altra di supportare le iniziative locali ed allargare la rete delle interazioni tra i Materani
- cerco di mappare le attività culturali in atto e di intercettare nuovi argomenti di discussione in modo che unMonastery possa fungere da strumento di facilitazione per l'avvio di nuovi processi di cambiamento.
Sulla base di questo scambio, registro diffidenze e malumori tra le persone ma anche tanto entusiasmo ed apertura: questa esperienza è molto più vicina al nostro vissuto di quanto si possa pensare.
UnMonastery si basa sul concetto che "l'unione fa la forza"  quando si mettono insieme le intelligenze e le competenze; ogni giorno qui utilizziamo la nostra solidissima rete sociale per superare ostacoli e inventarci soluzioni: siamo già un pò innovatori, dobbiamo solo esserne convinti.

@Alberto ci vediamo domani mattina
